An Alternative to Opera
The Little King finds opera boring, so he sneaks out to the local vaudeville house to watch, and eventually participate in, Betty BoopÂs trick horseback riding show. This is another later Boop, so itÂs not very weird, but it does have some charming moments with the Little King and a pretzel salesman, and the Little King jumping rope with Betty and her horse. Mildly amusing.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: **. Overall Rating: ***.
